Gordon Laxer is coming to KW to give a public lecture on his new book, After the Sands: Energy and Ecological Security for Canadians.
Impeccably researched, After the Sands is critical reading for anyone concerned about rising sea levels, pipeline and tanker spills, climate change chaos and Canada’s future in a carbon restricted world. Ralph Nader hails it as “a myth-destroying blockbuster book.”
The talk will be followed by responses from the community to relate Laxer’s work to local struggles and opportunities.
The event is free and open to the public—everyone is welcome!
